You don't have to go far from the city to find a truly diverse range of experiences. The common denominator is nature, where the varied terrain offers great opportunities on land, in the water and in the air.
Visit Ljubljana Bike Park in Podutik, Golovec (a tree-covered hill to the south-east of the city) or the Krvavec Summer Park and launch yourself down a range of attractive mountain bike trails. Three pump tracks are available in the city itself: in the Spodnja Šiška, Bežigrad and Fužine districts.
Walk among the treetops at GEOSS Adventure Park – where you can even sleep in the trees. Other attractions include a 915-metre zip line. As well as treetop adventures and mountain biking, Krvavec Summer Park offers you the opportunity to race downhill by mountain go-kart, monster roller (a kind of giant scooter) or rubber ring, and to have a go at slacklining and many other activities.
